Alienware m5550 question.

I have an Alienware m5550 1.38 C2D with 1MB Ram.  It's a nice laptop
and it gets everyone's attention. I like most aspects of this laptop
except for a few things and I'd like to know if anyone on this group
can offer a solution.  I checked the Alienware user support forum and
it's useless.  Sadly, this will probably the last Alienware I own
because of their dismal support. Anyway, all that aside ( that's
another story).

The wifi becomes disabled when I set the notebook to sleep mode. This
is normal as understand. But when I re-energize the notebook out of
sleep more, the wifi remains disabled. I have to completely reboot the
notebook to get the wifi to work again. Alienware tech support had me
update the notebook's BIOS and I did that through some utility that
they offer. It didn't seem to fix this issue, in fact, I'm not sure
that it resolved anything.

Any suggestions?

I am not positive but on my wife's laptop she hits the fn+f2 and it turns
the wifi back on.
You may check and see if your laptop has the same feature, it may use a
different key combo.
